Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta t-THE LETHSRiDQE HERALD Tueedey, February Investment gives bright 9 Swihart note to 'musical fruit Beans will be the name of the game in southeastern Alberta this year. This vegetable crop' which over the years gain- ed the title "musical will be grown on about acres in 1974, up from about 900 acres in 1973. Lud Prudek, president of Alberta Bean Growers Ltd., says acres of bean production is already committed for 1974 and members of the producer oriented organization will be combing the region near Bow Island to gather another acres of production.

They went ahead and put their money where their mouths were, borrowed a little more and started struction on a bean processing plant in Bow Island valued at more than Lud says the superstruc- ture of the building is now being worked on and about 50 per cent of the concrete work is complete. With final returns in for red Mexican field beans grown in 1973, producers received about per hundredweight. Many of the good bean growers in the Bow Island district were able to attain yields of one ton per acre. And it couldn't have come at a better time since bean prices have reached all- time record highs. Producers will reap about per acre from beans grown in 1973. With a cost of production ranging cLtd.

And for this reason, Lud feels the growers group might have to discourage farmers to limit production to acres the number of acres required to run the new bean processing plant at capacity. He says producers in Alberta can expect some tailing off of prices because many growers in the U.S. have started to contract their crops for to per hundredweight. But with the buoyancy of practically all agricultural products forecast in 1974, he feels the majority of the producers in Alberta will gamble on higher returns and forsake lower guaranteed contracts. He says the growers group would like any new producers to grow from 80 to 125 acres. This is the range of production for good efficient and economic units. Any less and the invest- ment in equipment doesn't pay and any more, a management problem is likely. On the wooly side of things, a delay on construc- tion of the new Lamb Processors Co-op Ltd. plant at Innisf ail is holding proceedings up for awhile The early winter has been blamed for the delay of construction, now scheduled for early spring. A permanent board of directors will soon be elected by the shareholders Honeybee prices up Canadian apiarists are facing high prices for package bees imported from the southern United States. In view of the current short supplies and high prices of bees, an Agriculture Canada apiculture researcher says Canadian beekeepers should winter more of their colonies. He and others are researching more efficient ways to winter bees in Canada's western areas. GRAIN-FED CALVES Agriculture Canada experiments indicate that veal calves can be fed grain, instead of milk, during the last few weeks before slaughter. The change in diet does not affect the light colored meat sought by veal lovers, and feeding grain is less expensive and time- consuming for the producer. who put up at least to buy into the venture. A plant manager will be named in the near future. When in full command, the manager will oversee plant construction before taking control of the start-up of the plant itself. Dr. Lavon J. Sumption, a consultant in animal genetics for Prairie Animal Breeding Enterprises, Ltd. (PABE, Ltd.) of Edmonton is mak- ing great strides in Mon- tana. Dr. Sumption will be the leader for the Montana Farm and Ranch Tour of Africa and Europe Feb. 9 to March 2. There will be 20 tour members from Great Falls and other Montana points and from Canada. Dr. Sumption worked at the Lethbridge Research Station from April 1966 to January 1970. He was an animal geneticist working on cattle crossbreeding programs for the station's animal science section.
